duck session is the so-called fiscal cliff. tonight on c-span we'll she you some of the august 2011 debate and news conferences from the u.s. house, the senate and the white house as congress considered and passed the budget control act. this is the law that created sequestration, the automatic spending cuts that are split 50/50 between defense and nondefense spending. here's a look at senate democrats talking to reporters about the passage of the bill. >> it was long, it wasn't easy. for weeks the american people have watched and wondered whether congress could get its job done. well, we got it done and brought our economy back from the brink of disaster. in the end, the two sides came together. that's how our system works. neither side got what they wanted, each side laments some of the things we had to give up, but that's the way it is. it's that way because that's how our system works, that's what compromise is all about. it was a bipartisan compromise. it wasn't the right-wing cap, cut and whatever it is over there. that was not bipartisan. it's nothing that we could agree to.

know, i think what i'd like to do is just to frame this up a little bit to say this fiscal cliff that we've been talking about all day here and talking about all week is really important. and we have to make progress right now towards a sustainable budget, and we've got a lot of experts sitting here about why that's important. but based on our work, there is a much broader competitiveness problem facing the u.s. right now. it's been building for decades. this is not something new, it's not a recession. it's been building for decades, and it's sapping the ability of the american economy to grow, and it's sapping the ability of the standard of living for the average american to rise. and unless we start tackling the real core issues that are making the u.s. less competitive and less attractive as a location for wiz, we're going to -- for business, we're going to go back to the fiscal cliff discussion over and over again. unless we can get our economy really moving and growing in the long run, these budget problems just are going to recur over and over again. based on our work, we h

in the bill is intended to restore fiscal cliff responsibility and accountability for defense spending at a time when our nation simply cannot afford to waste taxpayers' funds on speculative green initiatives like solyndra and dozens of other companies that are floundering or bankrupt despite billions of government investment as they call it. a recent d.o.d. report revealed that the biofuels program will amount to an extra $1.8 billion a year in fuel costs for the navy alone. that's just the navy, not the air force, not the rest of it. now, this lewd crews price tag is not surprising through -- ludicrous price tag is not surprising. we found in 2009 -- listen this is significant. the navy paid an outrageous $424 a gallon for 20,000 gallons of renewable diesel and in december of 2011, the navy purchased 450,000 gallons of biofuel for $12 million equaling about $27 a gallon. that's $27 a gallon we're talking about in our defense budget that we're paying for something that should cost $3, maybe $4 a gallon. the navy is not the only service being sunld to this -- subjected to this greening
